Temple Lake - www.facebook.com/templelakeofficial Temple Lake emerged from the canals of Camden on a cold January night in 2016. Since then, the band has played numerous venues in and around London, where they bring their influences from bands such as early Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and a nostalgic feeling to classic Pearl Jam. Having been described as riff-heavy, charismatic and hard to forget, with a traditional four piece set up, Temple Lake's roots stretch out far beyond the streets of Camden. With the initial members founded in the forests of Scandinavia, their arrival onto the London music scene has brought lyrical magic and soul; which when added to a collective of 40 years live experience, a fantastically dynamic English Bassist, the quartet are uncompromising and have mystical audience command. Temple Lake released their first EP earlier this year, available to stream or download on Spotify/iTunes now. www.templelakeofficial.com Voksal - www.facebook.com/voksal Voksal are a London-based four piece that began in the Spring of 2013, with a mission to create catchy music that would please both themselves and any listeners who may bare witness to them live.
